For Your Safety Against
Fires and Electrical
Failures We Offer
CPE Electric LLC prepares Infrared Thermography
reports that provide detailed information and insight on
electrical issues before they turn into major problems.
Infrared Thermography can be a time saving approach
to a preventative maintenance program. When used in
conjunction with other diagnostic tools, Infrared
Thermography can help in preventing major electrical
problems. Not all electrical problems can be detected
with Infrared Thermography alone.
The images that are present in the Thermography
reports are produced to show the difference in heat
between two objects with emissivity rated as close to
.95 as possible. A rise between two objects under the
same load outside the parameters in the report is
known as a "hot spot". The reports are generated in the
hot spots in question should then be analyzed further,
taking into consideration the difference in temperature
between the two objects under the same load.
The different colored cursors on the images indicate
different temperatures based on the color of the cursor,
the component being tested and reference values.
Infrared Thermography becomes a sneak peak into
electrical components to determine if they are within
operating temperature tolerances. If not, this becomes
a flag for further diagnostics, all in an effort to catch
electrical failures before they become major problems
or safety concerns.
